Faf du Plessis Makes Surprising Revelation About His Fear Of Facing Former Pakistan Spinner
He has scored runs in almost every part of the world and is a highly demanded player in franchise cricket. The right-handed batsmen have made the mockery of many top bowlers in the world.

He also opined that South Africa is well prepared for the upcoming Test series. As per him, the spinners will surely play a significant role with the ball going ahead in Pakistan.
“It was 13 years ago, so you try not to read too much into it. We’ve tried to prepare for everything and anything. I think the wickets will be a bit more like subcontinent wickets that they used to be, so the spinners will probably be more in the game.” he added.
